Northwest announces hours for laptop exchanges, pickup

Northwest Missouri State University’s information technology staff will begin issuing laptop computers to returning students on Monday, Aug. 7, and to freshman and transfer students on Monday, Aug. 21. 

New laptop models will be issued to undergraduate students enrolled in at least 12 credit hours and graduate students enrolled in at least nine credit hours.

Students who kept the previous laptop model during the summer must bring that laptop computer and charger with the Northwest Missouri State University sticker attached to exchange it for the new model. Exchanges will not be completed without both the laptop and charger as the chargers are different for the new models.

All students exchanging or picking up a laptop must be enrolled for fall 2017 courses and show a Bearcat Card.

Freshmen and transfer students who are checking out a new laptop computer also must:

Students may visit the Jon T. Rickman Electronic Campus Support Center to exchange or check out laptops during the following hours:

Exchanges and checkouts will be available throughout the fall trimester during regular hours between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, beginning Aug. 28. Students attending Northwest-Kansas City may exchange their laptops there during regular hours of operation.

Northwest's laptop program provides all students enrolled at the University with a fully loaded laptop notebook computer as well as technical support. Bundled with the University’s textbook rental program, which provides undergraduate students with all of their primary textbooks at the start of each trimester, Northwest estimates students save about $7,300 – the equivalent of about one year of tuition at other Missouri institutions – during the course of a four-year academic career.
